No, it's about Huawei's CFO trying to evade US curbs on trade with Iran. In addition, Meng has multiple passports including a Chinese elite passport. This elite passport shows the close ties with Chinese government. In the meantime, Huawei faces charges that it spied, stole IP, and is a backdoor for the Chinese government.

What's the difference between he saying it and we here saying it?  He was merely expressing an opi ...

In Canada, if a public figure, such as member of the government, makes public his opinions on an ongoing legal matter, it is construed to be interference in the legal system, and politicizing. Politics and the judicial system in this country are kept separate for that very reason.

In China, it is seen as normal because judges and lawyers are part of the Communist Party. They are members, and they MUST uphold the ideals of the Party. It is very common for government members in all levels to make their wishes known on some cases, and they can bend a judge's ear. It does not work like that in Canada. Both politics and the judicial system are kept separate from each other.

If the United States secures a trade deal with China, it would not surprise me in the least if Donald Trump was to order the Attorney General to drop all charges. Remember, Trump is all about "himself". If it makes "him" look good, then he'll do it, and he doesn't care who he screws in the process.

I totally agree.  He was just expressing his own opinion.

Latest:  He has been sacked for expressing his opinion!  That shows how intolerantt the Canadian Govt is, and also exposes its refusal to face the truth as uttered by the learned ambassador!!

It seems CD doesn't want to talk about Meng's multiple passports and her special elite one. Why so afraid?
